HubSpot CMS Hub can be quite helpful when I need to make sure I have a smooth, clean and fast marketing process for some of our ecom stores.That being said I feel secure and comfortable using their analytics tools as they provide a very complete, unique, and easy way to manage our sites marketing.

Using Joomla!, you don't need to be a web development expert to build the most creative websites; it provides everything you need and is quite intuitive. Most tasks can be easily accomplished using Joomla! modules. The benefits of Joomla! include learning site analysis, metadata, structure, and navigation to create a professional website. It's worth it.

Pros

HubSpot CMS Hub

  • Training and provision of documents to enhance and grow success with their platform.
  • Content scheduling!
  • Content management and the easy way you can manipulate pre-built schedules and shift content around, etc.
Ron Blackburn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Joomla

  • Multiple templates assigned on a page-level basis allow fine-grained control of your site design
  • Excellent ACL out-of-the-box means you can have a mutli-user website up and running without needing to install anything additional
  • Straightforward control panel and useful help features and documentation make it easy for people to manage their own websites

Cons

HubSpot CMS Hub

  • Although you can integrate it with Google Analytics, there is still a significant difference between what each tells you about [a] number of visitors to a given page, etc.
  • There's a lot to the program and it's not always intuitive where to go for a feature. Though the help center and academy are good and usually have the answers, having to look things up isn't.
  • It's expensive.
Gwendolyn Kestrel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Joomla

  • Updating was never as seamless/easy as it seems to be with Wordpress. Obviously we accounted for this with our own workflow/methods, but I remember whenever we did WordPress updates it always seemed a breeze compared to the time/energy involved with a Joomla update/upgrade.
  • For a while (I think this has changed some) Joomla left itself open to attacks when administrators were not as well versed as they should be. There were developer additions that did security checks/audits for you, but the CMS was the subject of a lot of attacks when left in the hands of our clients for a long time (who had changed permissions to make editing easier/convenient). Ideally the CMS would have been more restrictive on some of these things to prevent easy abuse. Obviously this is more the fault of the misinformed/human then the CMS, but it could have been more dummy-proof.
  • No native versioning. There are some community extensions that add this functionality, but they pale in comparison to the versioning plugins of other CMS's (WordPress specifically). Again this was some time ago and in our experience, it could have changed by now.

I gave it a rating of 10 because I just love how Joomla! works, how it is set up and how it handles many users. Also it is very fast, and there is no overload on the MySQL database or servers ever.

Joomla! 3.x is easily installed either manually or via a script provided by your host. It contains most of the tools needed to begin creating websites right from the start. Those features that it doesn't have are easily installed via links and buttons from the thousands of extensions available in the community

Today's Modern Joomla performs very well and is robust and durable. The pages load faster than they ever did in the past and Modern Joomla's integration into other software or systems has become seamless. Modern Joomla sites will last long and will stay running forever.

Between the core Joomla developers who are excellent at answering questions and providing support, you have a whole community of developers who work with Joomla and are happy to help fellow developers out answering questions and supporting the Joomla project. Out of the many communities I am involved in for open-source software, Joomla's community is by far the best.

Joomla has gone through tremendous growing pains. It is now better than ever. But before, when it was going from 1.5-2.5, the templates and plugins would break over and over again. If you don't understand what Joomla was trying to do back then, you might have a bad attitude toward it. Today, those pains are over and things don't break like they used to during that time period.

Alternatives Considered

HubSpot CMS Hub

It got the most powerful tools which other providers don't have like - covers contact management, deal and task management, and integrations with social and email to track interactions with leads. Deal and task management etc.
Aditya Torde | TrustRadius Reviewer

Joomla

We tested other platforms like WordPress, Magento and some local CMS. 
But Joomla offered us better resources for generating content.
Joomla is a CMS suitable for many types of projects, especially if you have several people editing content at the same time.
It allows you to maintain visual standardization and offers many options for working with images.
With its ability to control access to different articles, categories or even different components, it is a great tool, even if they are managed by different people.

Return on Investment

HubSpot CMS Hub

  • Has helped with visibility
  • Has helped cut cost since we can do more in one place versus having several software departments are using separately
Brianna Dinoff | TrustRadius Reviewer

Joomla

  • Joomla has reduced our costs of rolling out a new website because it uses less developer time and can be rolled out by individual users as needed.
  • Joomla has a lot of extensions and add-ons that make it easy to create and implement advanced solutions quickly.
